    Default How in the world do you have lucid dreams??

    I know lucid dreaming is where you are supposed to know that you're dreaming and can be able to control what you do in your dreams. Well I always know that I'm dreaming when I dream, I just want to know how you get to the point of controlling your actions in the dream. 'Cause that sure could help me take control when I'm having a nightmare, and I could be a total bada** in some of my relatively normal dreams. lol. Any advice on this will be greatly apprecited.

    Lucid dreaming is very hit and miss. You are already nearly there if you know that you are dreaming. I think intention can help. If you tell yourself before you sleep that you are going to know that you are dreaming, and that if something is chasing you, turn around. Or tell yourself if you find yourself falling, start to fly. Somewhere in your subconscious, you remember that you are going to do this. Tell yourself when you are awake what you will do if so and so happens.

    Also write down your dreams. This way you remember them, and then recognise the dream.

    Good luck.

    I gained the ability to make all of my dreams lucid. It wasn't intentional. When I was very, very young, I used to have recurring nightmares. There were three, that would recur virtually in a cycle, and would always progress exactly the same. Because they were recurring, I always knew when I was having the nightmares again. Eventually, I started to subconciously recognize key points in the progression, and once I did that, I was able to alter them. I honed the ability on nightmares, and now employ it in dreams. It was just a matter of willing the dream to change in a specific way for me. If you have one that recurs with decent frequency, try it out.

    Just a point to consider... I wouldn't try to make all your dreams lucid... I don't think that's the goal.
    I have written out over 100 dreams as great short stories without me "controlling" anything... just going along for the ride.
    Much or more can be learned from being "told" as you can from a dream "controlled"

    If I could control even some of my dreams, that would be so cool. I am jealous of those that can do that. I have bad dreams so i take sleep aid so not to remember . The good ones, well I would take sleep aid so I could stay.
